CAT 5 vs 5e vs 6(all 6 types) vs 7
Jun 27, 2011, 12:35 AM
I'm just wondering what the difference is between CAT 5, 5e, all types of 6 and 7. If someone could put up a comparison chart or some links it would help a lot.

So apparently there are no specifications and standards for CAT6 or CAT7 but yet newegg says that the CAT7 cable meets TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 Specifications. Makes perfect sense.

TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 is Cat 6, Cat 7 is just a proposed category that hasn't been officially adopted yet.
